Digital Compositing with

Daz Studio and Photoshop

When using DAZ Studio do you find that..

1. You spend too long composing and rendering scenes?
2. You rely too much on buying 3D assets that you don’t use?
3. You feel limited with DAZ Studio’s performance?
4. You feel your artwork from DAZ could be enriched by merging with other elements?

Combining the use of DAZ Studio and Photoshop provides wider options for your art, faster composition of your scenes and a more polished look for your completed artwork.

Vladimir Chopine is going to show you how to composite with DAZ Studio and Photoshop so that you can:

1. Make any type of element look like it belongs in a scene
2. Create your scenes quicker with strategic compositing
3. Benefit from a wider array of photographic or digital 2D assets
4. Save time with faster workflows

What other coaching group members are saying

Working with Paul and Digital Art Live has given me such a fresh approach upon my art. From a friendly and welcoming environment, to a supporting and cohesive set of tutors and support. Going on the Studio Mastery Course was the biggest leap of faith I have taken with regards to artistic endeavours, and I do not regret a single moment of it. Paul is a wonderful host and lead for the courses and demonstrates the ability to nurture people of all skill levels and help them blossom into the creative delights that they wish to be. I would pick up another course like this in a heartbeat to continue my journey and growth through the creative landscape of my mind.

My experience with Esha and your program for learning rigging is beyond phenomenal. I came in with the impression that this was going to be a quick tutorial on how to setup basic technical settings on how to do a basic rig in DAZ Studio. Boy was I wrong! In a good way! Every time we set up a session, I am blown away by how much detail and problem solving Esha’s sessions go into! I would not have imagined the advanced techniques and attention to detail she brings into each session! I’ve heard a few students call this information priceless, and I agree 100%.

The chat rooms are so full of information! Just reading people’s questions and people’s responses, it’s an invaluable time saver! When I read the questions and their solutions it reminds me, “I would have had to go thru those hiccups myself, and there’s the solution!”. The chat room creates a great sense that you’re not alone, and it gives you a freedom to test things out and get into “trouble”.  I am more than satisfied with this course. It has surpassed my expectations and more! I highly, highly recommend this type of session to anyone!

Here’s How it Works

8 weeks of Support and Training

The group will run from June, running on Saturday evenings (London BST time)

Each week we’ll have a Zoom webinar meeting (up to 1.5 hours) composed of training , coaching and follow up.

The topics of these training sessions will be based on the above, but we’ll pay special attention to coaching you on your sticking points.

We’ll provide you with project based work so that everyone is on the same page as we learn compositing.

In our live meetings everyone will share wins, goals, and challenges to get support, accountability, and feedback from the group and guidance from Vladimir.

Private online group area to interact between our live sessions

Any time you need some input or encouragement, you can turn to the private forum on a daily basis to connect with other group members.

We’ve found that the private group forum area is a powerful connecting tool to keep the conversation going between the weekly meetings.

This extends the benefits of the coaching group beyond the weekly webinar meetings.
